Terms and Conditions:


  • These general terms and conditions apply if the client (hereinafter referred to as "client") and the contractor (Hera N. Hunter, hereinafter referred to as "contractor") have agreed in writing to their application and validity.


2.Scope of the Contract:
  1. The contracting parties shall, in cooperation, define the exact conditions, framework, scope, and remuneration of the contract as detailed and in writing as possible.

  2. The client undertakes to provide the contractor with all relevant information and documents necessary for the proper fulfillment of the contract.


3.Purpose of Use:
  1. All graphics created by the contractor may only be used for the agreed-upon purpose.

  2. Furthermore, the client undertakes to coordinate with the contractor any further unauthorized use of the created and handed-over graphics. In case of unauthorized use of the graphics or violation of the terms and conditions and usage rights, the contractor reserves the right to object. No deadline is set for this right of objection by the contractor.

  3. If the created graphics are unlawfully used by the client beyond the agreed form, purpose, and scope, the contractor reserves the right to invoice the client for an appropriate fee.


4.Purchase of Products:
  1. The purchase of products is subject to the conditions applicable at the respective time.

  2. When you purchase a product: (I) you are responsible for fully reading the item description before committing to purchase it, and (II) completing an order on the Site (by completing a payment process via the "Order Now" button or similar button) may constitute a legally binding contract for the purchase of the respective product, unless these terms and conditions provide otherwise.

  3. You can select products from our product selection and add them to your shopping cart with a click on the corresponding button. Our prices are listed on the Site. We reserve the right to change our prices at any time and to correct any unintentional price errors. These changes do not affect the price for products you have purchased before. When paying, you will be shown an overview of all products you have added to the shopping cart. The overview includes the essential characteristics of each product as well as the total price for all products, the applicable sales tax (VAT)/value-added tax (VAT), and any shipping costs. On the payment page, you also have the option to review and, if necessary, change, remove, or correct the products and quantities. You can also use the editing function to identify and correct any input errors before placing your final binding order. All specified delivery times apply from receipt of your payment of the purchase price. By clicking the "Order Now" button, you place a binding order to purchase the listed products at the specified price and shipping costs. To complete the order process via the "Order Now" button, you must acknowledge these terms as legally binding for your order by checking the corresponding box beforehand.

  4. We will then send you an order confirmation by email, listing your order again, which you can then print out or save using the corresponding function. Please note that this is an automatic notification that only confirms that we have received your order. It does not indicate that we have accepted your order.

  5. The legally binding agreement for the purchase of the products is only concluded when we transmit an acceptance declaration to you by email or dispatch the products to you. We reserve the right not to accept your order. This does not apply in cases where we offer a payment method – and you choose this payment method for your order – where a payment process is initiated immediately upon transmission of your order (e.g., electronic transfer or real-time transfer via PayPal, Giropay, Paydirekt). In this case, the legally binding agreement is deemed concluded when you initiate the ordering process, as described above, via the "Order Now" button.

  6. The purchase contract can be concluded in [German and English] language. After conclusion of the contract, the contractual terms will be kept by us, and you will no longer have access to them.
